    CW 623 - Dr. Peter Navarro - CROUCHING TIGER, What China's Militarism Means for the World

    in Finance

    Is there a safe place to invest your money within the Chinese economy? Jason’s guest and author of the new Crouching Tiger book, Dr. Peter Navarro says no. He sees through the beefing up of the Chinese military as a way to distract from the economic failure which is drawing near. China is claiming additional territories and it says it doesn’t want conflict with the U.S., but its strained relations with Japan may force the U.S. into defensive mode. Dr. Navarro says he is surprised none of the 2016 U.S. presidential candidates are discussing the issue and stresses foreign policy should be the number one talking point of the future U.S. president.

    The Election Candidates: What's the Real Story?

    in Politics Progressive

    Trump and Sander's unexpected rise are, on the surface at least, encouraging. We have heard this story before: "I'm my own man/woman and I am for you..." How many years and how many elections have we heard this only to disappointed, again! Voters are desperately looking for someone to lead and time and time again all candidates fall short, why? Could it be that the following dark secrets have been hidden!



    Racism
    Genocide
    Militarism


    When have you heard any candidate address these issues? No, they won’t, because then they would be asked to do something about them. This country cannot move forward until we come to terms with the American Heart of Darkness.

    Fatal Mistakes: Festering Militarism

    in Politics Conservative

    You can learn from mistakes, but sometimes the mistakes are fatal. Our fatal mistakes have wounded but not killed this grand experiment in liberty yet. The longer we wait to revitalize our principles of liberty and virtue, the more extreme the correction will need to be and the harm more severe.


    We are divided between those who believe in limited government and those who prefer anarchy or tyranny. Liberty needs limited government to facilitate the protection of our rights. Liberty is practically gone because those of us on the ‘right’ fight amongst ourselves over quibbling garbage instead of uniting on restoring sound money, free markets, religious and civil liberties and a sensible foreign policy of non-interventionism.


    Our fatal mistakes are our own. The uber-national corporatists fearfully manipulate us, plunder us with financial malfeasance, and instill fear with their festering militarism. Democratism merely appeases the fickle mobs by satisfying disordered passions, while binding them with invisible chains.


    Our fatal mistakes can be corrected and the cost will be great; but the cost of infighting amongst those of us who love the Old Republic and the Constitution is far, far greater.


    Tyranny is assured UNLESS liberty-loving people band together to restore Constitutional governance by taking the right-wing of the Welfare/Warfare Party; or watch the statists in both parties push their corporatist agenda to their benefit and our demise. Now is the last chance to stop those who perpetuate an empire abroad and a police state at home. To defeat the lawless hordes of Cultural Marxists, the statists, collectivists, oligarchs, useful idiots and their fellow travelers especially the Democrat-socialists, first you MUST CRUSH the RINOs, for liberty!

    1DimitriRadio: Donald Trump sells "peace" better than #libertarian Ron Paul

    in News

    Dimitri’s Opening Monologue (from the LifePedigree.com studio)


    Donald Trump can teach Dr Ron Paul how to sell the idea of peace to GOP voters. The South Carolina Republican debate, and then the election results, are proof that Ron Paul has the right libertarian message about mindless militarism. But The Donald knows how to package and hard-sell the exquisite libertarian idea of peace-through-prosperity. Two simple audio clips speak volumes about style and substance


    First Segment


    Former Congressman Bob Ney, author of the soon-to-be-runaway bestseller Sideswiped: Lessons Learned Courtesy of the Hitmen of Capitol Hill, has great insights about the South Carolina GOP primary results, including why evangelicals voted for potty-mouth Trump instead of the pretty pious Ted Cruz 


    Second Segment


    Dr Cyril Wecht, legendary Pittsburgh forensic pathologist, also is a brilliant analyst of Democratic Party politics, local, state and national. Wecht dissects the Democratic Party Nevada caucus results, essentially admits the Democratic primary system is rigged by party insiders who created the “super delegate” scam (poor Bernie Sanders voters!) and Wecht address what no one else wants to talk about; black voter anti-Semitism possibly hurting Sanders

    Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this episode of Carson's Corner with the Election Boycott Advocates, we discuss the following:


     


    1. This past Monday was Martin Luther King Day. We remember the contributions of King. As we recall King's anti-militarism and anti-imperialism, his class consciousness, and commitment to democratic socialism and fighting racism, the contrast with Malcolm D's defensivdistorter as opposed to King's pacifist strategy are often debated.


    2. Author/Activist Paul Street wrote an article titled, "Race Without Class: the “Bougie” Sensibility of Ta-Nehisi Coates." We'll discuss this and more.


    3.The Iran nuclear deal, which was completed last week, trigering the end of sanctions.


    4.The UK's accusation that Putin ordered the assassination of a former Russian agent living in London.


     


    Plus, Dan Welch, activist and creator of The Greenhouse School, may join us to discuss his perdiction that Bernie Sanders may win the presidency. All this,plus your calls.

    Neoliberalism, Imperialism and Urban Development pt. 1

    in History

    In 2004, an agreement was reached between the United States and South Korean governments to move all U.S. forces in the country south of the Han River. This move will relocate the United States Forces Korea from the heart of Seoul to Camp Humphreys, outside the mid-sized city of Pyeongtaek, and to a second major garrison outside of Daegu. 

    The process, scheduled to be completed next year, will consolidate more than 28,000 troops into two regional hubs and will transform Camp Humphreys into the largest U.S. Army garrison in Asia.

    As the population of the garisson increases from 5,000 Soldiers and 7000 civilians, family members and contractors to more than 37,000 by 2016, civic authorities for the city of Pyeongtaek have developed ambitious plans for the expanding city including a major Samsung semiconductor chip plant, the world’s largest fuel cell power plant, an expanded maritime port, a free economic zone and tens of thousands of new housing developments. 

    Bridget K. Martin, a PhD student in Geography at UC Berkley, is researching the links between Militarism and Urbanization in South Korea. 

    In the first of a two-part interview she explains how American imperialism and Korean development, heavily connected since the end of the Korean War, are continuing to work together in new and surprising ways.

    Armistice Day

    in Politics

    Today we at RFK have a special program for Armistice Day, celebrating the end of World War I.


    "The war to end all wars."


    Courtesy the Global Research News Hour (60 min.) with guests: Michael Welch, Stan Goff, Joshua Key, David Swanson


    This episode of the Global Research News Hour takes a dissenting look at the Remembrance and Veterans' Day ceremonies,and similar memorializing and valourization of the soldier as an instrument by which anti-war sentiments and organizing are subverted. The episode looks at what it will take to dismantle the mythology of militarism in our society. We speak with an outspoken anti-war activist and blogger, who is also the author of several books including 'War is a Lie' and 'When the World Outlawed War'. We also air a previously broadcast interview with Stan Goff and Joshua Key. Stan Goff is a Retired Master Sergeant from the U.S. Army. He is now a pacifist and author of a number of books including his most recent, Borderline – Reflections on War, Sex, and Church from Wipf and Stock (Cascade Books).

    Joshua Key deserted the Iraq War in 2003,and crossed the border into Canada in 2005. He is the author along with Lawrence (Book of Negroes) Hill of The Deserter’s Tale: The Story of an Ordinary Soldier who Walked Away from the War in Iraq. Having failed to secure refugee status, he is concerned he could soon be deported from Canada and sent to a military prison.

    In 2004, an agreement was reached between the United States and South Korean governments to relocate the United States Forces Korea from the heart of Seoul to Camp Humphreys, outside the mid-sized city of Pyeongtaek, and to a second major garrison outside of Daegu 

    The process, scheduled to be completed next year, will consolidate more than 28,000 troops into two regional hubs and will transform Camp Humphreys into the largest U.S. Army garrison in Asia.

    As the population of the garisson increases from 12,000 Soldiers, Family Members and contractors to 37,000 in 2016, the city of Pyeongtaek, in co-operation with the central South Korean government, have developed ambitious plans. 

    These include a major Samsung semiconductor chip plant, the world’s largest fuel cell power plant, an expanded maritime port, a free economic zone as well as tens of thousands of new housing developments. 

    UC Berkley’s Bridget Martin is researching the links between Militarism and Urbanization in South Korea. In the second of our two-part conversation, she talks about the intensity of South Korean urban redevelopment, the goals behind USFK base consolidation and restructuring and the historical relationship between American military bases and South Korean society.
